Anxiety among residents
Rivers State residents are scared of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), following the news of a doctor’s death.
They are avoiding shaking hands.
Mrs. Charity Chukwu, a Rumuokoro, Port Harcourt, trader, said: “I have told my husband and children to avoid handshake.”
Speaking under the Rumuola Flyover in Port Harcourt, an undergraduate of the Rivers State University of Science and Technology (RSUST), Port Harcourt, who would not want his name in print, urged residents and other Nigerians to be vigilant, always wash their hands with soap and to stay in clean environment.
A commercial bus driver at Abali Park, Mile One, Port Harcourt, Felix Emeka, said: “My brother, everybody is trying to be very careful. Ebola is worse than HIV/AIDS. It is sad that Ebola has killed somebody in Port Harcourt. My friends, customers and relatives will understand, if I refuse to shake their hands.”
